... departure :( While i was packing i noticed that there were alot of moths in my room... ALOT of moths. ALOT. They were everywhere. I was later informed by my parents that the rain causes the moths to come out, and i should probably keep my windows shut.
After the clouds started to clear up (a few hours later) we headed into town in search of a restaurant where we could eat up on a deck, away from the ...

Pacific Bonita - 2nd biggest fish
Mackerel - Small
The Mackerel ended up being the best tasting fish, freshly caught and cooked by Chief Steveo
One of the craziest parts about the charter was on the ride home, the shipmate fillet all our fish and prepared it for us while we were hitting waves at 40mph. Insane, completely ...
... In less than 24-hours, we lost visual contact with them, but have worked to maintain regular radio contact with their whereabouts and how life is on their boat. Hearing about the amount of spillage and bruises they have encountered, the flat but jerky motion of Gato Go seems infinitely more comfortable than that on a monohull.
So what does one do on board? What does an average day look like? The day is broken in four 6-hour time blocks ...

After supper we went to the Hemingway bar and played cards until 9pm. Now we are back in our room and we are just going to hang out here for the rest of the night.

Historical Traveler Reviews Casa De Mita Punta de Mita
Casa Las Brisas sits on a beautiful secluded beach off the beaten path from Puerto Vallarta. You have the feeling that you are practically in the middle of nowhere which can be quite lovely especially at night--The star filled sky is heavenly. There are a few downsides to this boutique hotel. Our room smelled of mildew and we did not have hot water. When we asked if something could be done about the lack of hot water, we were told that no one else has complained about it and so it must be us--(That's a wonderful thing to hear). The beds are hard as rocks. There is a small pool, but no jacuzzi, no spa, no gym or yoga or anything of that nature. I had the sense from watching the other guests drinking heavely from the free bar all day and evening, that my husband and I were the only people there who were not alcoholics. The food was not so great. We left after 3 days and found our way to a magnificient hacienda in the city of Puerto Vallarta--Hacienda San Angel.
We miss Casa Las Brisas
We just got back from our Honeymoon and it couldn't have been better. Casa Las Brisas is a hidden treasure. It was perfect! The staff was unbeatable! You never went without a fresh drink in your hand. The food was excellent. We stayed in the Penthouse and loved it. You felt very secluded from everyone else (but you are next to the massage room...didn't even notice it though). We fell in love with this place and we can not wait to go back. You truly feel like your living up a royal life here.
Casa Las Brisas is our new Mexican home! Imagine your own secluded beach villa with dedicated staff that wait on you hand and foot, amazing food, gorgeous landscaping.....you're there! The staff was incredibly nice and very catering to any needs or whims. Even though the resort was full, the common areas are so large, we never had to be within earshot of anyone unless we wanted to. Amazing food, all around. Try the pico de gallo--the best ever! Watch out for those drinks, they make them strong! The beach was sugary sand and almost always deserted. It truly felt like we were in our own beach mansion. Extremely quiet, peaceful, relaxing place. The massage by Tomas was the best I have ever had--he was amazing!
No nightlife here, and any daily activites have to be coordinated ahead of time with the staff. They arranged a great fishing excursion for my husband. The ride from PV was about an hour and a little windy and bumpy, but well worth it. We will be back--and bringing friends!
Treated like celebrities...
This was in a word, HEAVEN. If, like my boyfriend and I, you are looking to get away from it all, live in the lap of luxury, forget every type of urban stress while being pampered with consistently excellent, personalized service, then Casa Las Brisas is the place for you.
From the minute we arrived to the second we left, we felt as if we were celebrities on retreat, getting the royal treatment at a long lost friend's sea side villa. From the amazing service to the delicious meals (there is no need to go to any other restaurants, since these were the best meals we had while in Mexico), Casa Las Brisas is a intimate, private paradise. The staff is incredibly sweet and attentive and Marc, the owner is there to help you should you need additional assistance.
This is a perfect place for a honeymoon, a special retreat with friends or a family reunion (not really for kids, but if you have grown up children). I cannot gush more about this lovely place. We also stayed at a resort in Nuevo Vallarta (see review of Playa Del Sol Grand) and it was nothing compared to the Casa.
This is an all-inclusive boutique hotel where everything is set to pamper you in quiet luxury. There is a different menu everyday made with fresh ingredients. It felt as if every time I looked thirsty, someone was there with another cold lemonade or Pacifico. Even the massage (ask for Thomas) exceeded my expectations (waves crashing in the background, jasmine petals everywhere, etc).
My only complaint (if you can call it that) is that the roads are still made of dirt and not yet paved, so getting to this faraway place is a bit bumpy. But then again, if you want to get away from everything, there is no place better to be than off on a dirt road. If you want TV, a big party scene, or picking up people at the swimup bar, this is NOT the place for you. But if you want sugar-soft sand, an azure beach with bathwarm waters and a tranquil, luxurious stay, then definitely go to Casa Las Brisas. Not many people know about this place yet, so get there before the place gets too discovered. We cannot wait to return.
Casa Las Brisas was the perfect place for our honeymoon. I was a little nervous at first since it is so far off the beaten path but it is amazing. It is right on the beach and all the rooms have a porch that overlooks the ocean. The food is AMAZING. It is all inclusive but is five star dining. The staff is phenomenal and is there to help you with anything. We are already talking about going back for our first anniversary! If you want nighclubs, crowded beaches and mass produced food - this is not the place for you. If you want a secluded private beach, amazing food and top-notch service, you have found your perfect place.
This place is a true hidden gem. My wife and I went to Casa Las Brisas for our honeymoon in mid Aug. 2005 and loved it. They cater to all needs, the food was always good (sometimes almost too rich) and there was plenty to do in the area.
There are actually seven rooms, instead of the six that are listed. There are six normal suites (all with a different look) and one penthouse, which is on the top floor and includes a spectacular view of the ocean and has a television.
It's so small that you get to personally know other guests, which makes it very unique.
The one downside is the road construction in the area, which provides an uncomfortable and long (about an hour) ride from Puerto Vallarta.
Spoiled in paradise
Beautifully designed rooms and elegant furnishings. Totally attentive service. A mile long nearly private white sand beach. Food and drinks were unbelievably excellent. Quiet and restful. Romantic. Only complaint was the very very low water pressure in the beautiful walk in shower and almost non-existent hot water. When we complained, we were told, with a big smile, that someone would be out to fix it on the day we were checking out! Amazingly, we were so pampered here, that we hardly cared. Can't wait to go back.
Just like home
Not enough has been written about this charming out of the way hotel on Punta Mita. The staff is wonderful, they can't do enough for you. The hotel itself is situated on a beautiful beach without too many tourists. I would highly recommend this gem and can't wait to go back myself.
Unbelievably special and fabulous vacation!!!
What a wonderful vacation my husband and I had in July at this lovely hacienda. Everything was just perfect. Our room was gorgeous, the entire place was beautifully landscaped and meticulously cared for.
The website does not really do the hotel justice at all. We were right on a beautiful beach, excellent for swimming.The entire place was simply gorgeous.
The food was excellent and creative and served wonderfully. What no amount of words can capture is the wonderful staff that works under the friendly and knowledgeable host and owner Marc. From the chef, to the maitre d" , to the people who served the food, cleaned our room, as well as the gardener, we were overwhelmed by the friendliness of the entire group. By the end of our too short week I felt I left a part of my heart at Casa Las Brisas. I hope to return and already am lonely for my new found friends there.
This hotel is not for you if you seek noise, nightlife and constant crowds and action. But if you search for beauty, serenity, friendliness anda place that soon feels like home, you have found it..
Attention to detail--Outstanding Service. A breathtaking and romantic place!!!
We will definitely go back.
